ARTrelief's Expressive Arts inclusive studio called artLAB©, is a program supported in part by a 2017 grant from the Watertown Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

ARTrelief is now a partner host of ArtWeek! Presented by Highland Street Foundation and produced by the Boch Center, ArtWeek has become an annual award-winning innovative festival featuring hundreds of unique and creative experiences that are hands-on, interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to artists or the creative process. 

In 2017 CambridgeSavings Bank made a monetary donation to support our renovations project "Dance & Movement  Floor Fund". We've reach half our goal, helps us reach our final goal!

In 2016 Alive Dance Collective's made a generous donation of $1,260, 1/3 of the proceeds of their show "We Dance When Ice Gets Thin". This donation was allocated to ARTrelief's Financial Aide Fund so that we can sponsor people in need, and provide low cost community programs.
